But Madrid made a mockery of Juventus' proud record, as they scored four times and became the first team in the Champions League era to win the competition in consecutive seasons.
A few days earlier, they also got hold of the La Liga title, finishing three points above rivals Barcelona, meaning the Duodecima celebrations had to be big and nearly never-ending.
Bale who was speaking to Manchester Evening News said his long-term contract which will see him stay in Spain for the next six-years is a sign of his happiness at Real Madrid. In the second half, we saw the best Madrid [performance] of the entire season.
"(Zidane) said that we need to be more aggressive, to not allow Juve to keep the ball easily like they did in the first half after our goal", Modric told reporters. "But I still finished the season happy, it's a great finish with another trophy". A third Champions League win in four years has drawn comparisons to the great Real side that won the first five editions of the European Cup between 1955 and 1960. You can always count on me'.
One of the perks of winning the Europa League is a single 90 minute match with yet another major trophy at stake, and Jose Mourinho is looking forward to the privilege of facing old club Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.
"Yeah, I have signed a long term contract at Madrid". "My family is happy and I am happy so we will continue what we are doing".
"Entering the Champions League is a new thing for many of our players", he continued.
